The Human Rights Campaign has encountered bigotry and hatred on a daily basis. Today that bigotry and hatred is on display for the world to see, not just for a small group of Oklahoma constituents that Rep. Sally Kern of the Oklahoma state legislature spoke to in private to see. In this video you will hear the words of Rep. Sally Kern as she states homosexuality poses a greater threat to our nation than terrorism:
It is despicable that these words were uttered out of the mouth of any American, much less an elected official. Even more despicable is that she admits they are not popular and still continues to say what she does.
What scares me the most is that her words could easily have come from the mouth of our own Congressman Bill Sali. They seem to be in the same boat. Visit the Human Rights Campaign website to take action calling for an apology from Rep. Kern and reminding her and the rest of the Oklahoma delegation that words do matter.
